Everyone has a story to tell, and those stories are what connects us.
Story to Tell Project
You are alive. You have been though some things, both good and bad. Each of those experiences have made you who you are today. The wins, well, they help to take you to the next level. But, the hardships and trials have made you stronger, and most likely a little more compassionate, understanding, forgiving and grateful.
If you are reading this, you’re still alive, which means that through it all, you have survived. Yes, some of your experiences are unimaginably difficult to think about, let alone share. And people never seem to understand and they judge, but share your story anyway. You are changing the world simply by living in your truth.
The truth, no matter how ugly it is, is a beautiful thing, especially when it is shared in a way that can help others. Through telling your truth, you transform, revolutionize, unite, teach and ultimately heal so many.
Story to Tell Project is a storytelling platform that shares heartfelt personal stories to inspire others to view their personal situations from different perspectives.
